    One year of the Audi CO2 program: reduction potential of 1.2 tons of CO2 per car identified

    The consistent electrification of the product range means that a large proportion of the CO2 emissions are no longer accounted for by cars’ exhaust systems, but by the supply chain and in upstream production processes. Together with its suppliers, therefore, Audi is developing measures to reduce CO2 emissions that take effect already in that phase. The focus of the CO2 program is on particularly energy-intensive materials used in production, such as aluminum, steel and battery components.

    Audi Environmental Foundation: starting signal for “Smart HOBOS” high-tech beehive

    Bees pollinate about 80 percent of our agricultural plants and wild vegetation, so life without bees is almost impossible. Too little pollination would have severe consequences – both environmental and economic. With the worldwide unique “Smart HOBOS” (HOneyBee Online Studies) project, the Audi Stiftung für Umwelt GmbH (Audi Environmental Foundation) and the Julius Maximilians University of Würzburg are working to protect these vital and fascinating insects. On Tuesday, Prof. Dr. Hubert Waltl, Board of Management Member for Production at AUDI AG and Chairman of the Board of Trustees of the Audi Environmental Foundation; Christoph Hillenbrand, District President of Upper Bavaria; Prof. Dr. Barbara Sponholz, Vice President of Julius Maximilians University of Würzburg; and bee expert Prof. Dr. Jürgen Tautz opened the research station at Audi’s production site in Münchsmünster. The first bees will soon move into their new home.
